Sex education content

We're waiting for Nadine Chandler to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear NSW Department of Education,

I would like to know the curriculum for grade 8 students in sex education. Specifically if you are teaching gender ideology, such as that children have an innate gender identity and can be born in the wrong body and/ or can change sex.

Yours faithfully,
Nadine chandler
